The 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2013 (So Far)


Saisei Networks

CEO: Bill Beckett

Saisei Networks used this year's Open Networking Summit to tease its forthcoming network traffic visibility software it says has "customers waiting" around the globe.

Saisei, based in Sunnyvale, Calif., specifically shed light on its Virtualized Internet Traffic Management platform, a software-based tool that helps network operators better manage network traffic, resources and applications. But the platform's stand-out feature, according to Saisei, is that it's completely software-based and can run on almost any standard x86-based platform, freeing users who "feel locked down with nonperforming vendors" because of proprietary hardware.
